Saved my Life
I could not recommend a better lawyer than Steve Minert. This man has saved me on three occasions. Twice reducing the penalties for my two DUIs to the very minimum and once getting my charges dropped altogether.

Highly Recommended for DUI Defense
I highly recommend Steve Minert. As a former prosecutor, he is knowledgeable, thorough, understanding and patient. I was a nervous wreck after getting a DUI. He was instrumental in helping me navigate the legal system as well as calming my nerves. Following his advice helped lead to a favorable outcome in my case and I’m thankful for his efforts and direction. I’m glad I chose his firm and would encourage you to do the same.

Steve Minert was exceptional with answering all questions and walking me through the process each step of the way so I was prepared for any outcome. He kept me in the loop and fought to get me the best possible outcome I could have asked for.

Steven is one of a kind!
Steve is a one of a kind lawyer. He was the only one to confidently say he could get my case dismissed and was able to do so very quickly. Thanks Steve!

My Man, Steve!
Steve at Minert Law office is always my go to and has been for over ten years now. I haven't always had the best driving record, plus I was wild student in school. I'm 33 now. And still find things from my 20's I need to clean up. So even if it's just infractions, FTAs or if you're up there facing DUIs, reckless driving; I'd put it on my skin, Steve has done it all. Don't let your kid get a felony cuz they lifted a couple tall boys. Go with Minert Law office. To Steve, Thanks for believing in me, and seeing me out the other side. Being the one I could talk to when I couldn't even call to my family. I can't tell you how essential you were to my growing process.

DUI case, could have been a nightmare
After calling Barr while looking for a short consultation and being declined due to a lack of availability, Steven called me out of the blue to chat, for no cost. Although I’d been told that a DUI was pointless to hire representation for, After a short discussion, i recognized the need to have steven on my side. He helped me immensely with every restriction or payment, for a price that came nowhere near the amount he saved me.

Reckless Driving Defense
I had an aggressive driver following me, acting like they would side swipe me, getting in front of me and braking hard, etc. when I tried to speed away to avoid an accident, I was charged with reckless driving for speeding and illegal lane changes. The aggressive driver went so far as to pull in behind the officer and lie that I had caused an accident and that they had been tailing me to get a license #. This angered the sheriff's deputy further, who then wrote up the situation to look as though I had possibly caused an accident, hit and run, and then further inferred that I had taken a long time "to catch up to" as if I was avoiding being pulled over or trying to get away from the police. Steve gave me the benefit of his substantial experience on both sides, prosecutorial and defense, and let me know the worst case/highly unlikely outcome, the likeliest worst outcome, the likeliest best outcome, and how to work toward the best possible outcome. I felt less unease immediately and more empowered. I had to do work to assist Steve and he was open to my ideas, such as providing GPS to show there was no merit to the aggressive driver's hit and run story, etc. I completed the tasks that Steve asked of me and the result was a deal with the prosecutor for a lesser charge and a fine. I felt confident that had I proceeded to jury trial that my odds would have been favorable with Mr. Minert as my attorney, but I didn't want to incur further expense or take further time to resolve a stressful situation. Steve definitely is an honest and skilled attorney. He is ethical, honest, affordable, well connected, and knows how to leverage the truth in your favor. Minert Law doesn't pawn your case off on a less experienced lawyer in a huge firm or take your well being lightly. Steven answered my questions promptly and even communicated with me on weekends more than once. I would absolutely recommend Minert law.

Steve had my best interest in mind. He was very professional and understanding. 10/10 Recommend. Steve was with me throughout the process of not one, but two cases. Both resolved with the best possible outcomes. Saying he is good at his job is an understatement. He goes above and beyond! Thank you Steve and your Team!

I had never used a lawyer before but Steve was willing to answer all of my questions and gave me the confidence to know that I was in good hands throughout the process. Thanks to his help, I got the exact outcome I desired and I am so grateful for his dedication to my case.

Best in Idaho
Steve Minert helped me get out of a situation that could have seriously made a negative impact on my future. Price was reasonable (much cheaper when compared to other law groups), always responded to any question I had (Mon - Fri) via email or phone, and was very professional when it came down to business. I would recommend Steve 110% of the time for anyone dealing with serious traffic violations / for anyone who just needs the extra hand when it comes to anything traffic court related.

Past case dismissals
Very helpful with getting my past cases dismissed. Thorough and well thought out approach. I could tell he genuinely cared about helping me to clear my past misdeeds so I could move forward with my career. Great communication and accessibility. Highly recommend!

Great Work from Steve Minert
I heartily recommend Steve Minert if you need a criminal defense attorney. I needed a lawyer with experience in dealing with my type of case at a reasonable price. I am glad I chose Steve Minert. At the free consultation, Steve showed himself to be not only knowledgeable, but an expert at explaining the laws and court process without being condescending. Once I began working with Steve, my stress levels dropped significantly. Thanks to his expertise and positive working relationship with the Boise prosecutor, I had a good outcome to my case.

Good job.
Steve immediately understood my circumstances and knew exactly what I needed in court. He got me the best deal I could hope for and was excellent to work with. He charged a very fair price and I would not hesitate to call him again.

Great person - Great Lawyer
I hired Steve for a criminal case. There are a few things that i feel stand out about him more than most. First off, I have never met a more detail oriented legal professional. Throughout the case I was provided with extremely detailed information as to the status, and plan moving forward. This included clear and concise explanations when necessary. Second, He doesn't mess around. What I mean is, he is very dedicated to the task at hand. He is extremely diligent. At no time did I feel he could have worked harder on our case. That, in and of itself, is a rarity. And last but certainly not least. Steve really cared about us as people and not just about the case. He is a genuine person and it is reflected in the way he conducts himself. I would use him again without hesitation. He has earned my respect as well as every word of this review. 5 stars- Thanks Steve!
